Hamline Sweeps Doubleheader from BVU

Hamline Sweeps Doubleheader from BVU

The Buena Vista team was looking to bounce back on Monday following its first two losses of the season, but the Beavers struggled to get much going offensively during 8-3 and 14-0 setbacks to Hamline University inside of U.S. Bank Stadium.

The Beavers scored twice in the second inning to take a 2-1 lead.  Freshman Parker Truesdell drove in the first with an RBI groundout before Peyton Renning scored on a wild pitch.

The lead was short-lived as Hamline came back with seven unanswered runs to hold an 8-2 lead. 

Bryce Rheault singled to right in the sixth inning, driving in Devin Wagenman, for the game's final run.

Wagenman doubled for one of the team's six hits in the contest.  He finished 2-for-3 with the run scored.  Rheault and Devon Harms also chimed in with two hits apiece, as Renning scored once.

Jake Hadaway (1-1) suffered his first loss of the season, allowing six runs (four earned) over 4.1 innings.  He struck out four, but also walked four.  Tate Holmes was charged with the final two runs over his 1.1 innings while Tyler Vorrie worked around one hit by striking out two in his one inning.

It was all Hamline in the nightcap, scoring five runs in the bottom half of the first and six more in the fifth to blow the game open.

Buena Vista was held to only five singles in the contest, including a 2-for-3 effort by Renning.

Egan Bonde made his first career start for the Beavers and pitched three innings, allowing five unearned runs on four hits. Dalton Mason allowed two runs in his inning of work before Vorrie saw action for the second straight game and was tagged for six runs (two earned) in just 0.2 innings.

Buena Vista has now dropped four straight games and is 3-4 overall.  It returns to action next on March 18 when it begins its spring trip in Tucson, Ariz., with a doubleheader against Salem St.
